Martin Luther King, Jr. He lived, thought, and acted, inspired by the vision of humanity evolving toward a world of peaceand harmony. We may ignore him at our own risk. King arrive at this statement?

It appears that there were a myriad of thinkers, philosophers, and people whom King knew personally, who were responsible for shaping his approach.
Martin Luther King, Sr. As pastor of the local church, he embedded strong religious ideals in his son and linked him to the church. King soon left to begin his formal education at Morehouse College, where he became acquainted with the remarkable president of the school, Dr.
Mays, who influenced generations of black students. This propensity to shape the minds of black students was not lost on young King. Later on, he publicly recognized Dr.
Mays as an enormous influence on him in his formative years. King is said to have believed that without God, nonviolence lacked substance and potency. Academic Influences It was with a strong Christian faith in hand that Martin Luther King embarked upon his formal education. As Martin moved on to the seminary, he began to pass countless hours studying social philosophers, including Plato, Aristotle, Rousseau, Hobbes, Bentham, Mill, and Locke.
Next came Hegel and his contention that "truth is the whole. While King deplored the substituting of materialism for religious values, he applauded Marx for exposing the injustices of capitalism, promoting class consciousness among the workers, and challenging the complacency of the Christian churches.
It was in part due to his reading of Marx that King became convinced that capitalism had failed the needs of the masses and that it had outlived its usefulness. When it comes to identifying his greatest influence, however, I think King might place Walter Rauschenbush ahead of all of these philosophers, for his bookChristianity and the Social Crisis.
For example, he used the concept "agape" Christian brotherly love in ways that showed the unmistakable influence of Paul Ramsey. Ramsey has coined the phrase "enemy-neighbor" the neighbor includes the enemy and referred to regarding him with love as the ultimate in agape, for in such cases nothing can be expected in return.Mahatma is an adaptation of the Sanskrit word mahātman, which literally meant "great-souled." As a general, uncapitalized English noun, "mahatma" can refer to any great person; in India, it is used as a title of love and respect.
